How does the SRI label encourage companies to make the right choices?

In addition to selecting socially responsible companies, SRI encourages them to keep on making the right choice.

As a shareholder, an SRI labelled fund can take an active part in the elaboration of development policies. It votes during board meetings. For instance, SRI funds encouraged votes on management issues, particularly about senior staff remuneration.

Additionally, the fund can start a dialogue with companies in which he has stock-actions, in order to initiate change in their strategic orientations. Its arguments will weigh more as it can pull out at any moment.
